Duterte Reader - The Power of the Foul Mouth

On 22 June, ISS and the Erasmus Graduate School PhD community will host a conversation with the editor of the Duterte Reader, Dr Nicole Curato.

The collection of essays offers an overview of Rodrigo Duterte’s rise to power and actions of his early presidency of the Philippines. The book is a critical analysis of one of the most media-savvy authoritarian rulers of our time.

The reader has contributions from leading experts on the society and history of the Phillipines. The Duterte Reader is necessary reading for anyone needing to contextualise and understand the history and social forces that have shaped contemporary Philippine politics.

Editor Dr Nicole Curato will be present for a presentation and discussion.
